Vintage African trade beads were used as bartering currency.  They were handmade in Murano, Venice from glass and are given names for identification based on their location, shape, form and color.  These beads can date back to the early 19th - mid 20th century.

The red and white beads are often called "white hearts", and the black and white beads are often named "skunk beads".  

The vintage trade beads are combined with pearls for a fresh, contemporary touch.
Approximately 18 inches.
